[callout2]Before we met Annie we had been trying to conceive for almost 18 months. During that time we had 2 miscarriages. Meeting Annie not only filled us with confidence, but we followed her program & advice & fell pregnant about 6 weeks later. Thank you Annie for having such an impact on our lives

[slide name=”PCHC benefits 3 generations of offspring.”]
When both of you commit to this 4+ months you are contributing to the health of not only your child but your grandchildren also!
[slide name=”PCHC is based in the Science of Epigenetics.”]
It allows for the presence of all the factors required for fertility & for the creation of a healthy foetus. It also enforces the absence of all factors detrimental to fertility. PCHC aims for optimum general & reproductive health of egg, sperm & the nurturing environment of the uterus.

The preconception period is a minimum of 4 months. The instant that the sperm & the ovum combine, an irreversible genetic code is formed for future development of your baby. The health of your ovum (egg) & sperm reflect the health / toxicity of the environment in which they grow.
[slide name=”Why 4+ months of PCHC?”]
The 4 months is determined by the ‘maturity’ period of the ovum. This is a biological fact & not a guess-timate! We require a minimum of this time to ensure that you have the best possible outcome for a healthy conception & baby’s robust health.

Some couples take longer to conceive. (There are never any fully guaranteed time frames in PCHC). So the time for these couples depends on their joint past health history of infertility, general health & full commitment & application to their PCHC program.

Taking the time to produce a super sperm & a super ovum will allow for you to have a super conception!
[slide name=”The Woman”]
The egg (oocyte) development takes approximately 120 days to mature. During this time it is vulnerable to toxic exposure, stress & nutrient deficiency. A woman’s general health, well-being vitality & happiness all deeply affect her ability to conceive & carry her baby to full term. PCHC is essential for you to experience optimum health, the joy of a healthy strong conception & a healthy pregnancy
[slide name=”The Man”]
Sperm is one of the smallest cells in the human body. It is remarkably vulnerable to environmental stress & toxins. Sperm development takes over 80 days to maturity. Illness, toxicity, trauma, stress & poor nutrition will affect mature sperm regardless of a man’s health at the time of medical examination.

Male infertility can also be the result of abnormal semen parameters. Semen is affected by age, toxicity, oxidative damage to the sperm, radiation exposure, poor to low nutritional status, social toxins & life style choices.

Miscarriage rates have been shown (Fertility Study Karolina, Stockholm) to be linked to the health & morphology of the sperm. This study showed that 50% of all miscarriage were due to male DNA fragmentation rates & other fertility issues.
[slide name=”Do we both have to do PCHC?”]
Absolutely! The health of both the sperm & the ovum is VITAL to your best possible outcome!
